Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe : a thrilling race day timed by Longines
October 04, 2015
The Swiss watch brand was also presenting an international Group 1 race, the Prix de l’Opéra Longines. This elegant 2000 meter race reserved for thoroughbred fillies and mares aged three years or older was won by Covert Love ridden by Patrick Joseph Smullen.
This unmissable rendezvous of the flat racing season is the perfect occasion for Longines to present the Official Watch of the event, a chronograph in steel from the Conquest Classic Moonphase collection, a refined timepiece which echoes the excellence and elegance of the stars of the equestrian universe. With a diameter of 42 mm, this model houses a self-winding mechanical chronograph movement. Its silvered dial makes an elegantly contrasting background to the moonphase display.
Involved in equestrian sports for more than a century, Longines is proud to support this prestigious event as the Official Partner and Timekeeper. This week-end will be filled with tradition, elegance and performance, values that are shared by both these high-level races and the Swiss watch brand.
In the context of its partnership with France Galop, Longines is the Official Timekeeper of the racecourses of Chantilly, Deauville and Longchamp, as well as the Title Partner of the Prix de Diane Longines. The Swiss watch brand is also partner of the Qatar Racing and Equestrian Club.
